If true, it would equal the longest suspension in MLS history which was levied against the Houston Dynamo's Ricardo Clark for kicking a downed Carlos Ruiz in the chest in retaliation for a foul. The largest fine in league history-$20,000- was charged to Edwin Gorter of the New England Revolution in 1998. Gorter was disciplined for the use of a racial slur against a teammate.

We will have more information once the suspension has been confirmed by the league.
